Why New Century Homecare Services?
We conduct an extensive background check on all our caregivers. We are very careful about who we hire and with whom we match our caregivers. Also, if a caregiver cannot make a shift due to their own illness, we can replace that person with another caregiver and not leave the client and/or family without coverage. And, we handle payroll and taxes for all our caregivers, which is something for which you would be responsible when privately hiring a caregiver.
All our home health care staff go through a rigorous screening process:
- Employment history verification and minimum of two reference checks
- Criminal history background check
- Verification of active license and certification
- Written competency testing
- Adherence to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards
- Screened through Office of Inspector General (OIG) sanction registry
- Screened through state Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) registry
- Certification of Social Security numbers
We provide the following services:
- Home Health Aide Services
- Homemaking Services
- Companion Services
- Nursing Services
- Rehabilitation Services (Physical and Occupational Therapists)
What credentials to look for:
Caregivers come with a wide range of experiences and credentials, and you should look for the best fit for your needs. Some caregivers have no official credentials but have a great deal of experience. Others have caregiver credentials focused on primarily non-medical tasks, like helping with bathing, dressing, meals, and housekeeping. These credentials include Personal Care Assistant (PCA) and the Home Care Assistant (HCA).
Credentials including Certified Home Health Aide (CHHA), Home Health Aide (HHA), or Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) cover training for light medical assistance like helping with medications and taking basic health care measurements such as temperature and blood pressure.
More advanced credentials with additional requirements for education and licensing include the Licensed Practical Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse (LPN/LVN).
The most formal credential for giving care is the Registered Nurse (RN) or Medical Doctor (MD) with precise state requirements for education, training and licensing. The more medical help you or your loved one needs, the more appropriate it is to look for credentials focused on medical issues and experience with similar conditions to you or your loved one.
